Coming off a wildly successful year of touring, 7 Walkers, the revered band features legendary drummer and Grateful Dead co-founder Bill Kreutzmann, guitarist Papa Mali, multi-instrumentalist Matt Hubbard (Willie Nelson, Fastball) and legendary New Orleans bass man George Porter Jr. (The Meters, Funky Meters).
Starting with three shows in New York, including a two-night stand at City Winery on September 2 & 3, the band will make its way to Colorado before swinging back through the South and wrapping up the tour at Durham, NC's Carolina Theatre on October 23. With George Porter Jr. also on a reunion tour with The Meters this fall, look for 7 Walkers Fall Tour to alternate bass players between shows, with select performances to feature Dirty Dozen Brass Band founder and sousaphone player Kirk Joseph Jr., and Tea Leaf Green's bassist Reed Mathis (who also appears on the 7 Walkers' album).
Co-written by Papa Mali, 7 Walkers, and longtime Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter, the band's 2010 self-titled debut earned high praise from critics and fans alike. No Depression called it "an unexpected jewel in the rough," Blurt Online raved "both assertive and alluring," while Daily News proclaimed: "as tasty as any dish ever served up by Kreutzmann's higher-profile collaborators."
